Wacom Intuos added to Chrome OS compatible tablet lineup


Tokyo, Japan and Portland, Ore – June 9, 2021 – Wacom announced today that its Wacom Intuos Small non-wireless model holds the Works With Chromebook certification, following the One by Wacom, certified earlier this year. Chromebook users, especially students and beginning creatives, have more options to start creating digitally, using a Wacom pen tablet with a growing number of drawing, painting and photo editing applications that work flawlessly on Chromebook.

“Chromebook has been attracting attention among education sectors and by those seeking new solutions for working from home. Wacom is currently working on expanding Chromebook compatibility to include further Wacom devices and bring its intuitive and natural pen technology to a fast-growing number of Chromebook users,” says Faik Karaoglu, Executive Vice President of Wacom’s Branded Business. “Combining an Intuos tablet and Chromebook also enables young creatives to unleash their full art and design potential with a number of drawing and painting apps. A long-term collaborative partnership with Celsys offers Wacom Intuos users an opportunity to create spectacular art with the renowned drawing application, Clip Studio Paint.”

Plug in and start creating

Wacom Intuos Small non-wireless model connects seamlessly with any Chromebook featuring USB-A and the latest version of Chrome OS. No driver is required. The ergonomically designed and light-weight Wacom Pen boasts 4,096 levels of pressure and the company’s battery-free EMR technology. The responsive, ergonomic, pressure-sensitive pen gives users a natural way to write, sketch, draw or edit content on a dedicated tablet space.

Wacom Intuos also offers a great start to explore digital creativity with Chromebook. Wacom Intuos purchase entitles users to an inspirational software bundle, including a 3-month free subscription to Clip Studio Paint Pro, a powerful, easy-to-use drawing app for comics and manga. Collaboard, Limnu, Explain Everything and Kami, also included, are tailored apps for education. 

Wacom Intuos Small non-wireless model is now compatible with Chrome OS, Windows, Mac and select Android devices.

Wacom Intuos is available at the Wacom eStore and select electronics retailers with a recommended MSRP of $79.95 (USD).
